Hi,
I would like to replace the following characters in an input string:
"$'&+,/:;=?@<>#%{}|\^~][`

I'm using ASP.NET and C#
I'm looking for code that looks something like this:

string specials = "\"'$&+,/:;=?@<>#%{}|\\^~][`";
Regex regex = new Regex(specials);
string output = regex.Replace("input with specials", "x");

Above code compiles but doesn't work.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

z
